Very nice UL pack

I'd never been impressed with weight weenies, until I picked up the pack of one. I was amazed. It was at Harriman State Park, Dutch Doctor shelter. I was there already, having a cuppa, and he came up and dropped what looked like a day pack on the floor of the lean-to. We got to talking. He'd left Augusta, GA three weeks earlier.

Even he would be impressed with this pack. It's a toploader, has a removable back brace (which I've exercised doing,) can take a bladder (I've got a 3L Camelback in there now,) and a smart compression system. The lid has two pouches - one accessible from the outside, and one inside the lid.

I got the orange, as I'm of the school that you get seen if hurt or lost. It's quite orange-red. Some feel that colors like these interrupt their enjoyment of the wilderness. I would argue that waiting to die for not being seen in the wilderness with a broken leg would interrupt mine.

I digress. While I haven't done so, I'm quite sure that the pack would take a DWR pretty well.

All-in-all, a solidly built, pretty comfy pack that will be used for everything from summer overnighters to winter peak bags.
